    Archos just announced an intriguing new product. They have a new Android 4.0-based 7-inch gaming tablet with built-in controls that basically is a giant gamepad. They are calling it, the GamePad. As you can see from the picture above, the concept is fairly impressive. Here's a breakdown of the known specs at this time:
    • 7-inch capacitive touchscreen of unknown resolution
    • Dual-core 1.5 GHz processor
    • Quad-core Mali 400 GPU
    • 8 GB of built-in storage space
    • A microSD slot
    • An HDMI out
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    Those specs are all well and good, but how's the game support you might ask (especially with the controller)? Here's a quote with some details,

    That's pretty slick. The GamePad will first go on sale in Europe in October for €149.
